re: Making E2E testing easy with Cypress VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi!
Nice article.
However, Cypress has lots of limitations, for instance, you can't upload or download files, no multiple tabs or iframes support. While Cypress is a good tool for components testing, for general end 2 end tests I prefer Puppeteer from Google Chrome. I also use CodeceptJS which has a very simple syntax and brings cypress-like experience to Puppeteer.

 

Hi and thank you for the read!

Cypress is still quite new and hasn’t implemented all features yet. I have tried puppeteer as well, but since it runs on top of chromium, it won’t work in for example Firefox or safari, which cypress is working towards fixing. Also found it easier to make test suits with cypress then with puppeteer. But both are good frameworks for sure!!

 

Puppeteer already supports firefox, and over the support of safari and firefox in Cypress will butt for years. Still, the Puppeteer is made by Google, and therefore the level of integration with browsers and the team there is much better.
